The Village Voice has an immediate opening for a lead blogger and editor of its news blog, Runnin' Scared. We're looking for a New York-based journalist who has a thorough understanding of the New York City landscape. The ideal candidate is not only familiar with deadlines but motivated by them; has enough reporting chops to ferret out when they're being spun; has a nuanced understanding of how the web works, and how writing for it differs from print; and is unafraid of occasionally offering his or her opinion, not just rehashing the what, where, and whys that can be read elsewhere. Applicants must have professional reporting and writing experience for a media operation, in print or online. This is a full-time position with competitive salary and benefits. Interested and qualified applicants should submit a cover letter, resume, and two or three of their best samples to NYfirstname.lastname@example.org.
